Nexium Injection Description

Oral medication is prescribed for most people that have been diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). But when oral therapy is not possible or appropriate, a Nexium Injection may be administered by a healthcare professional, usually in a hospital setting. Nexium Injection (Esomeprazole Vial) is primarily used as a short-term treatment and is the first proton pump inhibitor to be approved for infants over one month old.

Block the Molecule Responsible for Pumping Acid into Your Stomach

The proton pump is a molecule found in certain cells of the stomach. These molecules pump acid into the stomach in order to break down your food, making it easier to digest. Sometimes this acid can irritate the lining of your stomach and the upper part of your small intestine (duodenum). Proton pump inhibitors like Nexium reduce the acid production by blocking the enzyme in your stomach wall that makes acid. If taking this medication orally is not an option, as with young infants, a doctor or nurse will administer Nexium Injection in hospital.

Conditions Treated by Nexium Injection

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when the lower esophageal sphincter relaxes and the stomach acid, which is usually confined to the stomach, is able to flow back into the esophagus. This can lead to many symptoms, including recurrent heartburn, breathing difficulties, belching and a sour taste in the mouth.

For infants older than one month, symptoms may include, vomiting or spitting up after meals, poor growth because of the inability to keep food down, and cranky or colicky after feeding. Long-term contact between the esophagus and acid can cause permanent damage so you should discuss any symptoms with your doctor or pediatrician.

Nexium Injection may also be administered to treat and prevent peptic ulcers associated with the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or to treat Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. ZES is a condition in which a tumor or enlargement of the pancreas may cause excessive secretion of stomach acid.

Before a Nexium Injection is Administered

Tell your doctor about all prescription drugs and over the counter medications you are taking, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements before you receive a Nexium Injection. Combining Esomeprazole Vial with certain medications may reduce their efficacy. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have so your doctor can determine if a Nexium Injection is the right medicine for your situation.

Nexium Injection Precautions

You may develop a vitamin B-12 deficiency if you are given a Nexium Injection on a regular basis over an extended period of time. Seek advice from your doctor regarding this possibility or if there is something you can do to assure this will not happen.
